New military lounge at airport seeking volunteer staff

WARWICK - Volunteers are needed to staff the Rhode Island Military Organization lounge at T.F. Green Airport, which will be opening in the near future. The lounge is expected to serve more than 10,000 armed forces members annually. The facility will have two managers and a staff of volunteers to attend to customers' needs. Built and appointed by volunteers and community donors, the space was provided by the Rhode Island Airport Corporation,

The facility will provide refreshments, sundry items, entertainment, computer access and a respite for traveling military service members, veterans and their families.

Volunteers are required to fill out the RIMO application, acquire a background check and go through a training class. They will then be able to dictate the number of hours worked each month. Organizers are looking for those who can dedicate four volunteer hours per month. Send an email to RIMOvolunteer@gmail.com .
